Passenger dies on private jet, plane diverted to Halifax Stanfield International Airport

 A private jet made made an unscheduled landing at Halifax Stanfield International Airport this morning after a passenger died aboard the aircraft.

The passenger, an unnamed 64-year-old man from the United Arab Emirates, was on his way to Houston to receive medical treatment. He was being escorted by a doctor who asked for a medical diversion to land in Halifax.

Police and medical responders were waiting at the Esso Avatat Building when the aircraft stopped there at 1 a.m., but the man had already been declared dead.

Halifax RCMP spokesman Cpl. Scott MacRae said there is no sign of foul play.
